Aveeno is a household name! This daily cleanser is formulated with soothing oats and is fragrance-free. Plus, it’s super easy to rinse off, so you can say goodbye to that pesky residue feeling! And here’s the best part—it’s made with biodegradable ingredients and packaged in a recyclable bottle, so you can feel good about caring for your skin and the planet at the same time!

Is there anyone who hasn’t used OLAY at some point? It was a staple at my grandmother’s house, and she had amazing skin. Packed with gentle exfoliators, it works wonders in lifting away dull, dry skin, leaving you with a fresh-faced glow. Plus, it’s formulated with hydrating conditioners and key anti-aging ingredients like Salicylic Acid and Glycerin, so you can cleanse and exfoliate while promoting healthy, younger-looking skin.

It’s great for normal, combination, and oily skin types. Plus, it has special ingredients like Amazonian White Clay and Alpha Hydroxy Acid that help make your skin feel smoother and softer.

It removes dirt, oil, and makeup while keeping your skin hydrated and refreshed. Perfect for normal, dry, or combination skin types, especially if you’re dealing with dryness, redness, or dullness. Plus, it’s vegan and cruelty-free, so you can feel good about using it.

    Nice to see such an assortment— I have used a few of these. I also love anything infused with Vitamin C.

  2. Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad! I have tried everything from cleansing oil to Dove soap on my face, and it flakes and peels!

  3. Happy Anniversary to your parents. Congratulations!! I love your Spring tops post. Amazon has so many very cute spring tops. I wash my face every night using Cetaphil cleanser. it gets off the makeup and leave my skin feeling so soft and moisturized, never leaves my face feeling tight.

  4. Debbie Sanders says:

    Yes every night I do my cleanse/moisturize routine. I use Aveda products for my mature skin. Love them and they do a great job.

  5. I had to go back to Cetaphil gentle cleanser. My skin right now doesn’t like much.

  6. I wash my face every night. I can’t stand the thought of makeup on my face all night long. I wash it again in the morning too. I’ve always had oily skin, and even at 52, I can’t use most “mature skin” facial products because they’re too oily for me. Most people my age need more moisture. I am not that person. :/

    1. Sheli, consider yourself lucky. The skin on my face is so dry that it flakes and peels most of the time, no matter what I use. 😞

  7. Cherry Spiers says:

    Love your words…… it truly is everything between that counts!

  8. Great post! Another one I will be saving. I love trying the different beauty products. I want to try that vitamin C cleanser. I have started using CeraVe eye cream and it by far is one of the best I’ve used. I have always used Estee Lauder till I tried this one.

  9. Happy 65th Anniversary to your parents! What a milestone that is!

    I wash my face every night, unless I’ve used no sunscreen or makeup. I love Fresh Soy Hydrating Facial Cleanser. It’s a “clean” product that leaves my dry skin not tight after washing.

  10. I use the CeraVe cleanser and I love it. But I’ve used the Olay, in the past, and it’s great too.

  11. Linda Shearer says:

    I have a cleanser that I love bit definitely want to try one with vitamin C.

  12. Great choices, also there is a Johnson and Johnson facial cleanser I have used for years around $8.

  13. I am in the process of changing my skin care regimen and wish I had done it years ago. When I had a facial a while back, I was introduced to the Eminence line and am loving it.

  14. Elizabeth Tobin says:

    Yes, I’m a Gurl who washes her face nightly! I use Purity by Philosophy.

  15. I’ve used both the Olay and the CeraVe. You can’t go wrong with either one of those in my opinion.

  16. I cleanse/wash my face every day, morning and night. I have oily skin prone to breakouts, so need to cleanse. Great article and gives me options to try different cleansers. Have a blessed week! Happy Anniversary to your parents!

  17. Great choices! I love CeraVe! I pray your mom and dad have many more years together. happy anniversary to them!

  18. Thx for so many great options
